Don’t Be Pickin’ Ms Daisy’s Flowers!

Don’t Be Pickin’ Ms Daisy’s Flowers!

For the month of May our Character Constructions Tag Exchange was “Down on the Farm”, using Catherine Moore’s new line of stamps, Blue Daisy.

I wanted to use several of the stamp plates when creating my tag, including:

  • Blue Daisy, Plate #2- Outfit & Hat
  • Blue Daisy, Plate #3- Legs, Lamb & Flower Basket
  • Blue Daisy, Plate #4- Arms
  • French Laundry, Plate #10- Head

I always enjoy creating these images because you start with a line drawing and stamp various papers and then color them.  This month I used Copic markers to color.  There is so much detail in the images:

After putting the different pieces together I then added the rifle and paper flowers to the tag, along with the white picket fence.  I cut gingham fabric and ric rac to embellish the card.  #characterconstructions #copic @gregsnla

 

3 Ms Daisy’s off to find new homes in the tag exchange.

Hippity, Hoppity, Easter’s On It’s Way

 

Character Construction Easter Card, 2017.04

It’s one of my favorite times of the year with spring well into season and the weather feeling so great.  There is also a freshness in the air that comes with all things growing.  I love seeing the various fruit tress and flowers starting to bloom.  Last weekend the cherry blossoms were in full bloom in San Francisco.

For Easter I challenged myself to incorporate as many of the Character Constructions stamps as I possibly could.  

This time I chose to color the images with colored pencils.  After coloring the images I back them with various colors of cardstock to give them more umph!

The images were as follows:

  • Mad Tea, #10- Large Egg
  • Mad Tea, #1- Small Egg Tag
  • Bird & Bee, #5- Bunny & Carrot
  • Blue Daisy, #7- Head, Bodice & Hat
  • Blue Daisy, #1- Arms
  • Inner Child, #1- Legs & Shoes
  • French Laundry, #6- Dress
  • Timekeeper’s Garden, #13- Flower
  • Paris, #8- Bow

Wishing everyone a very special and loving Easter holiday.  May it bring great fulfillment to your heart.

Life is a Masquerade

“Masquerade” was the theme of our Character Construction Tag Swap for the month of March.  I chose to play on Lady Gaga’s title, “Don’t be a Drag, Just be a Queen” for my tag.

CC Tag Swap: Masquerade

For the tag I used various mediums: Italian paper from Flax, feathers, paper roses, crystals from Jan’s in OKC, crown and various ribbons.

The stamps used for the doll were all Character Construction: head- Queen of Tarts #4, dress- Paris #3, mask- Cirque #6 and matching die for dress.

I guess the meaning of this card for me was that life isn’t always as it is presented and at the same time we have to present to others what we want them to perceive of us.
